    How to Sell Popcorn

    Why We Sell Popcorn

    Narragansett Council and Trail’s End Popcorn provide an amazing opportunity to help our Scouts pay their own way in the Scouting program and support Council-wide activities.

    In 2014, our Popcorn Sale helped provide:

    • Nearly $300,000 for individual Scouting units and Council programs
    • Nearly $15,000 in delicious Trail’s End Popcorn products for our service men and women at home and abroad through the military donation program
    • Over $189,000 in Financial Aid to families in towns all across our Council
    • Valuable life lessons in communications, planning, organization, and math to our Scouts
    • Helped provide program and facilites support for our 8 world-class camps across Southeastern New England

    Additionally, popcorn proceeds help make it possible for Narragansett Council Scouts to experience the thrills of high adventure through life-changing experiences such as:

    • 50 Miler Backpacking Treks
    • BSA's National Jamboree
    • Philmont Scout Reservation
    • National Youth Leader Training
    • Widlerness Adventure Trips

    Some other important features of the Popcorn sale include:

    • High Commissions - 35% of the proceeds of your sales go directly to your unit.
    • No out of Pocket Expenses for Unit - Popcorn is distributed to your unit and you collect the money from the orders before you pay the Council for the popcorn. No waiting for the profits – you keep them when you collect for the orders
    • No Risk – If you don’t sell all of your Popcorn the Council will take it back, no questions asked, no penalties.
    • You have a Support Team - The Narragansett Council is committed to making this campaign successful for everyone involved with your unit. The volunteer and professional support system is readily available to assist you with the tools you need to reach your goals.
    • High Quality Products. Trail’s End popcorn is part of the Weaver Popcorn Company (established in 1928), which is one of the world’s largest popcorn producers. They are committed to customer satisfaction and the success of your individual unit campaign.
    • Cool Prizes. The Council funds a prize program so that sends you prizes based on the level that the boy achieves. The Council also funds Council-wide events and incentives to help motivate, excite, and reward the Scouts.
    • Proven Winner. The Popcorn sale has a long history of success in towns all across our Council, and the Country. 
    • Experience – With over 30 years of experience, Trails End has the highest profit return of any fundraiser.
    • One and Done - Thousands of packs and troops fund their entire year of program through the only sale
